Decked Out Dining Room

To round out the Christmas tour of my desert domicile, I've decked out my dining room in it's holiday best for your viewing pleasure:

Take a seat and stay awhile :)

I made the napkin rings by tying a felt snowflake to the napkin with red
and white baker's twine and then attached a glittery red ornament for fun

The glittery Santa boots are supposed to be ornaments but I filled them
with candy canes instead

The red cardinal is a tree pick that I attached to my feather wreath
with a staple gun

The black piece peeking out from the bowl is the top of one of the faux coal
pieces that I originally had in my living room decorations

Mmmm peppermints!

I added some velvet ribbon and a bow to the pocket door that leads
into my kitchen to make it look like a giant present

 To make a tree topper, I attached a bell to the top of my feather tree

I didn't realize how many Christmas trees I had until I grouped
them altogether on my sideboard

I love my Charlie Brown Christmas tree :)

What did you think of my decked out dining room?

  1. Your dining room looks beautiful! I love all the metallic animals. So fun. And the idea of wrapping your door like a present is genius!

    Just curious, did you install those open shelves in that nook yourself? I love the look.

  2. Thanks you :)

    The open shelves came with my place (huge score!) and there's actually a third one that I took down so my wreath would fit. They're all adjustable and sit on clips that fit into those vertical brass bars which is great but each shelf is solid wood and weighs at least 50 pounds haha

  3. LOVE this! A great example how traditional and festive can still be modern and fresh. Great job!

  4. This room is amazing! I feel like I'm looking at a real life winter wonderland in your Dining room. How fun! So glad I stumbled across your blog today. I'm a new follower!
